Meet Susan


Expert Aesthetician & Founder of Temple of Beauty Facial Boutique

“Esthetique” in Greek is 'lover of beauty'. I believe that every woman's inner beauty is meant to be seen - her mystery unveiled.

My passion for beautiful skin is a result of my own 20-year struggle with acne, pigmentation and deep scarring. In building Temple of Beauty in 2001, my mission was to not only clear my own skin, but to also make a difference for others by providing in-depth assessments, individualized skin care strategies, and education.

In this, I love to put my training and research of skin and skin care into form - by sharing my knowledge, expertise, and techniques, and by helping many of you with your skin concerns.

PART THREE: The Mystery of Labor

The natural phase after conception and gestation is labor. The mystery of this phase never ceases to amaze me. The mystery is unknown yet somehow deep within, it is known. In creating this next phase for Temple of Beauty, this labor phase fits appropriately. Labor is exciting, scary and painful. This is it! The time […]

Nervous from a previous experience at another major spa and very sensitive skin, we took it very slow to test my skin. To my delight we were able to carry on and after 5 treatments my skin was smoother, lighter with a more even tone. After using the products, my skin is no longer dry.

I’ve always had very red skin and lots of brown spots, giving me an uneven blotchy skin tone. Wanting to prepare my skin for my son’s wedding, Susan started me on the products to restore a healthy skin before we started and after 4 Skin Rejuvenating treatments and 2 facials, I no longer need to wear makeup to cover the unevenness and I have a beautiful glow. I’m very happy  with the results and I’m going to keep going until my larger brown spots are gone.

I’ve had skin issues of extreme redness and pigmentation for many years and have always been so self conscious about it that I rarely went anywhere without makeup. The thought of facials or any other treatments didn’t register as a solution due to cost considerations, my discomfort with anyone touching my bare face and frankly not believing that anything would change. I agreed to trying the dermaviduals® skin care line after sharing my concerns with Susan. Her compassionate and personal concern for my feelings was the reason I agreed to my first facial (amazing) and a series of Skin Rejuvenation treatments. I am thrilled about the results! Imagine my shock that at 66 I was receiving compliments from family, friends and complete strangers including men at work and the most surprising, a woman who approached me in Costco to tell me I had such beautiful skin! Any considerations I had previously, have since completely vanished! I can’t thank Susan enough for her support and encouragement.

Before coming to Temple of Beauty, I avoided taking pictures due to my acne. Being acne-prone and having stubborn skin, Susan recommended two products: Plutioderm® Plus (moisturizer) and Suusmoon® Lotion N (toner). Within just one week, my skin was feeling fresh and people had started complimenting my skin. My clear skin has given me more confidence and I feel that I don’t need makeup to cover up my skin anymore. I no longer need to hide. As well, having very dry lips I tried the dermaviduals® lip balm, and the next day they were completely hydrated. I’m sold on dermaviduals®.

I have had a number of facials prior to Temple of Beauty and I always would break out after.  With the regular facials at the Temple of Beauty, I don’t breakout anymore and my skin is looking better and better.

A co-worker of mine has been going to Temple of Beauty for facials and skin rejuvenation and I have been watching her skin transform with no pigmentation, younger looking and with an amazing glow. I have since become a client of Temple of Beauty because of troubled skin and have been exceptionally pleased with the knowledge and care I have received for my skin.
